Bangor, High Street 1908

More about this scene


Caption for Bangor, High Street 1908: Bangor's main street runs between the station and the harbour. It is shown here crowded with shoppers and an early car. The street today has been partly pedestrianised. In the early years of the 19th century, there were only 93 houses in the town. However, after the construction of the bridges over the Straits and the opening of the railway, Bangor grew at a fast rate into a thriving holiday town.
